Outlook works so I have internet access -- just no browser -- just says connecting forever. My internet explorer doesn't work either. I tried power down and back up. It doesn't matter what site I tried to access. All was fine before the Firefox update. Coincidence? Seems unlikely....

Back in 2015, Firefox's search bar became completely un-useable. Since then, I've fixed the problem with Classic Theme Restorer, but that add-on is no longer supported.

So how do we get the old search bar back? How are people supposed to search without a proper search bar?

For the record, I count…

4 SERIOUS PROBLEMS WITH THE NEW SEARCH BAR:

1. The new search bar was supposed to make searching faster. What a lie! It takes just as many clicks as the old bar, except it's now much SLOWER because you have to select the search engine EVERY SINGLE TIME you search!

2. Another thing slowing it down is the lack of text labels on the icons: You're now forced to look through a bunch of icons to find the engine you want! This is crazy! Can you imagine if they printed phone books with no names, only pages full of 'icons' of the different services!? Would that "speed things up"? Never!

3. Most people regularly use MORE THAN ONE engine (e.g. Google, YouTube, Spotify, Twitter, etc.). So why are we forced to pick one "default" engine? Imagine if your fridge asked you to choose one "default food", then every time you went to the fridge it always took out that one thing unless you told it otherwise! How irritating!

4. Perhaps the most deeply annoying thing about the new search is that the search process is now BACKWARDS to the user's thought process. When people search the web, we ALWAYS know what KIND of media we're searching for FIRST and THEN we think of the search query. Can you imagine if a guy took a girl on a date and asked her "Please give me the name of the movie or meal you want" and THEN AFTERWARDS asked her if she'd prefer a movie or a meal? That's exactly what the new search bar does!

This is a plea for help, but also an appeal to Mozilla to fix the crazy new search bar. (If devs are reading, I'm an interactive designer and I'd be more than happy to provide details of a perfectly elegant solution for how the bar can be adjusted to accommodate fans of both the old and new style.)

Hi, since yesterday, when I open Firefox, there is no menu anymore, neither my Bookmarks menu and I can't use my Keyboard for action. For example "command" N for a new window doesn't work, neither "comand" w to close a window. The only one working is "command" Q to quit. I attached 3 screenshots. The first one shows the way it was. On top the menu with Firefox | File | Edit | View | History, etc... and all my Bookmarks visible. Now when I open Firefox I see the top menu if no other window is open. As soon as I open a window my screen looks like the 3rd image with no menu anymore, only Firefox. And no more bookmarks. I use MacOS Catalina (10.15.4). What can I do? Thanks for your help.

I use Firefox for many years. Firefox is always synced and I use "Firefox master password".

The problem is that every time I try to sign in my account I see this message: "This account is not active. Please contact an administrator if you believe this is an error. " This message is looks like mozilla's prank, because someone needs to sign in first to get help! As I try to get help, "support mozilla" is drive me to an endless loop in Mozilla.org.

After several minutes (I think about 15minutes) I don't know why and how but I'm in! This is happened every time I try to sign in my account!

Why is so much time consuming and frustrating the way to sign in? What it means "This account is not active." and why don't given a reason why this happens or/and a way to fix? Why I can't just type the UN/Pass to sign in?

Thanks in advance and sorry for my english.
